What is an Installment loan?

A Cash 4 You Installment Loan is money you borrow for any kind of personal use such as paying off credit card debt, investing in home improvements, taking a special vacation, or paying for an engagement ring or wedding expenses. To repay the loan, you make regular scheduled payments over time up to 60 months depending on your loan amount.  An installment loan gives you the flexibility to make big purchases, and then pay it off at a pace that makes sense for you.

What is the difference between an Installment Loan and a Payday Loan?

Payday loans are short-term loans that the borrower pays back on their next pay day. Installment loans are typically for higher dollar amounts than payday loans, and are paid back over time.

Will applying for an Installment Loan affect my credit?

To apply for Cash 4 You Installment Loan, we will request your full credit report from one or more consumer reporting agencies, which is considered a hard credit pull.

What if I have poor credit?

Your credit report is not the only variable we consider. We utilize risk assessment tools that verify the accuracy of information on your application and may review customer payment history on similar products.

If I am bankrupt, can I still get a loan?

We are able to consider customers who have been discharged for past bankruptcies.

Is the Cash 4 You Installment Loan secured or unsecured?

The Cash 4 You Installment Loan is an unsecured loan. This means that you do not need to provide collateral for the loan.

Are there any origination or prepayment fees?

No. We want to make things simple for our customers, so we have no origination fees, closing costs or prepayment penalties.

Your regular scheduled payments are automatically withdrawn from your bank account. You can make additional payments at any time at one of our 100+ locations.

When will my first payment be due?

Your first installment loan payment will be due on your next pay date

Will making a large payment or additional payments change my regular due amount?

Making a large payment or additional payment on an Installment Loan will not automatically reduce your monthly payment. If you make a large or additional payment, the first part of the payment goes toward any interest accrued. The remainder goes toward the principal balance. Your regular scheduled payment amount will stay the same, but you will be on track to pay your loan off early.

Can I refinance my current Cash 4 You Installment Loan?

If your loan is in good standing then you may be able to refinance your loan. If you refinance your loan, then the principal amount will be rolled into a new term in which you will continue to be charged daily interest.
